How to Make Camp Coffee, Two Ways
Instructions for satisfying your caffeine cravings campside, whether you're high-brow glamping or roughing it.
THE FANCY WAY
Pack a portable French press, like Snow Peak’s titanium model, and a hand-cranked grinder—Water Avenue Coffee’s Matt Milletto recommends the Hario Skerton. Boil water separately, steep four minutes, and press. Gaze soulfully into the morning mist.
THE COWBOY WAY
Pack coffee grounds in a ziplock bag. Come dawn, bring water and a pinch of salt nearly to a boil. Mix in coffee and simmer (not boil) for about five minutes. Remove from heat, add a small amount of cold water, and let sit for a few minutes. Prepare to run straight up the nearest mountain.
